    Description

    Truly unique "retreat" steps away from the street! This treasure of LaGrange Park is nestled in a private natural sanctuary. Walk down the porous paver sidewalk past lush perennial gardens complete with water feature, patios, and walkways. Enter the warm, charming home full of history for LaGrange Park and stunning views of Salt Creek! 1st floor Great Room features gorgeous hardwood floors, extra-wide crown molding, beautiful views of Salt Creek through the french doors flanking gas-log fireplace additional door to driveway, and large cedar closet. Large Living Room with plaster walls for additional gracious entertaining space. Separate Dining Room. Updated Kitchen with solid oak mission-style cabinets, corian counters, stainless appliances designed to maximize space with breakfast bar/food prep peninsula. First floor full bath recently renovated and includes steam shower and heated towel warmer. 2nd floor Master Bedroom with walk-in closet and additional closet opens via French doors to 4-season Sun Room with walls of windows overlooking Salt Creek, electric fireplace, bamboo floor, and vaulted ceiling with skylights. Second Bedroom faces East and third Bedroom currently functions as home office. Large bathroom with shower, vanity with corianders counter, heated towel warmer and washer/dryer. Hardwood floors throughout first and second floors. Recreation Room in the basement is carpeted with gas fireplace. Utility/Storage Room has epoxy floor. Windows have all been replaced and feature mission-style inserts. Whole house generator. Beautiful window-lined hot tub room overlooking Salt Creek attached to the garage. Both paver driveway and flagstone patio are water permeable/soaker - no pooling of water - just absorption straight down. Even epoxy grout between bricks and flagstone allows water to go down but prevents weeds from coming up - perfectly maintenance free! Exterior lights are solar and gas. Irrigation system installed using water pumped from Salt Creek allows you to water any time you want! Special grasses with 10-foot roots planted along bank of Salt Creek to prevent any erosion. Property has been awarded Audubon Society Natural Wildlife Habitat award! Interesting History of the Home attached in "Additional Documents". This is an amazing home - there truly is no other like it! It's a definitely "must see"!
